Where Does My Heart Beat Now?

Sometimes I think football is the devil's work and that it's designed to break your heart and make you want to throw TV's around rooms. At people. Arsenal managed to play the crappiest football ever against Man Utd. yesterday, and hence before the game was even over I had managed to get myself well drunk. You have no idea how frustrating it is to want to swear in Norwegian and yell "Driiit!" at random people when everyone around you speaks English.

Fortunately I was surrounded by good people, so at least the social part of the evening went as planned. I also went to a book club yesterday, never been to one before. We discussed Neil Gaiman's American Gods, and it was fun! I bought the book when I was in Oslo this week, but did not manage to finish it in time for the meet-up yesterday. Nonetheless it was a good time and I'll definitely go back next month. Met some more good JD people as well, and got a little introduction to the thinking behind the organization.

This evening I'll attend a piano recital in one of the churces in Helsinki. I'm looking forward to that, although my mind will mainly be with Miia and Willem as the latter managed to dislocate his knee cap dancing last night, don't ask me how. Next work week will be short, as I'm leaving for London Thursday morning. It will be _so_ good to have a break :)

This is getting cool.
Of course I am an AC.MILAN fun!
(and actually in The Premier League I simpathize for Arsenal..I was really pissed when I saw them together for the Champions League...I wanted them both in the final...).
I'm going with a couple of italians and a Canadian to watch the game at Sports Academy on Wednesday.
You got to come too!
We could go to Memphis to the WW, drink a beer and head to Sports Academy around 21.
What do you think? :)

I was actually planning on skipping that game, but give me a couple of days to think about it. Today is not a good day to be an Arsenal fan, so I need to get over the "I'll never watch football again!" feeling ;) Would be fun, though, so I might join you if not for the full game so at least for the second half.
